NIMCON 7 News
As preparations for the show progress, we will keep this post up to date with the latest items of interest to know for the show. The latest is as follows:
Goodie bags are back!
At NIMCON 7 we will be handing out goodie bags to attendees who enter works in the show. We are working to obtain information from hobby companies, useful items, and more to stuff in the goodie bags this year. Enter you work and claim yours at the show.
The seminars at the Butch O’Hare show back in November were fantastic, so we are following their example to bring you seminars at the NIMCON 7 show. We are working to setup a couple of seminars from some of the most talented modelers in our area and are happy to announce Carl Knable will be one of our presenters. This is a seminar you don’t want to miss!
Best Of awards and Master Class
This year we will have two Best Of awards in the aircraft and armor categories and a single Master Class award. This will allow more modelers in our most populated categories a shot at a special award. The Master Class winner will still be decided by popular vote of the entrants but we will award only one Master Class award based on number of overall votes. As a reminder, the Master Class is for those entries that are previous winners at NIMCON, Regional or National level competitions, so bring your best award winners for all to see and take a shot at this coveted award.
This year we will have teams of judges start reviewing exhibits as they are placed in their categories by entrants. We hope this will speed up the process to ensure we are timely with the awards ceremony and perhaps give us time for a nicer presentation. Our judges will be working as entries are coming in and our show goers are admiring the work, so please be mindful of this and courteous to our judging teams as we work to make the process more efficient.
